Closed 6790, 6850, or gtx 460 best overall? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: February 25, 2012 6:04 PM in Graphics & Displays Share traumaiv February 20, 2012 7:49:46 PM I do realize that the 6850 is the best out of the batch and originally i was going to buy this : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... but there were some bad reviews about the fan and the temps. and all of that and it discouraged me a bit. so i thought maybe i could buy a 6790 with really nice cooling such as: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it is nice but then again it unfortunately is not a 6850 but im not sure if there is much a difference. and also i ran across one of these : http://www.amazon.com/Galaxy-Technology-Mini-HDMI-Graph... which is cheap and at lower resolutions has better performance then the 6790 also another 460 i had in mind is: http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-miniHDMI-Graphics-01... my monitor res. is 1680 x 1050 and sometimes i use my 32' plasma which res. is 1024 x 768 More about : 6790 6850 gtx 460 Best solution sonexpc a b U Graphics card February 20, 2012 7:52:59 PM Share Get this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Slightly faster than the HD 6850 (original 256 bit version of the GTX 460 1GB). Great overclocker and better brand as well.
